This headline at Breitbart is false: Mitch McConnell: Time for GOP Establishment to ‘Stand Up to’ Tea Party. What Mitch McConnell reportedly said was that it’s time to stand up to Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF). That’s a far cry from saying “‘Stand Up to’ Tea Party,” as Matthew Boyle’s headline claims. Seriously, Boyle should be […]

What’s Wrong With the Heritage Foundation?

If you’ve been involved in politics for very long, you know that it has always been akin to going to battle. In the old days, political activism was more along the lines of a game of chess: thoughtful and sober-minded. As of late, politics has been more akin to American Gladiators in that the steps […]

Why Senate Conservatives Fund Is So Bad At What They Do

I don’t like blogging on this topic but I’ve had about all I can take of the nonsense from Senate Conservatives Fund which is attacking the pro-life candidate in Kentucky’s next U.S. Senate race: Mitch McConnell.

Matt Bevin vs Mitch McConnell? No Thanks

Our goat Sammy.

Yesterday, I wrote that there is no Tea Party-backed challenger to Mitch McConnell. I’m on the email lists of local Tea Party groups and, though I get emails from them, not one has mentioned Matt Bevin….until today. Apparently, some Tea Party people are backing Mr. Bevin here in Kentucky. It’s odd that I received no […]

There is no ‘Tea Party-Backed Challenger’ to Mitch McConnell

Kentucky 2012 election results

This article about Harry Reid at Politico is, in a word, silly. Politico: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is enjoying the possibility of a tea party backed challenger to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. “He tried to make love to the tea party and they didn’t like it,” Reid quipped about McConnell to at an event […]
